Dear all,

I hope you all are in good health. I am new in ArcGIS server 10.3.1 installations. Please helpt me in some administrative issues. I have 3 servers (web sever IIS, sql server 2012 R2, ArcGIS server 10.3.1) and each one has windows server 2012 R2 as OS. Now please suggest me if my way of installations is ok or not.

1. I have make the arcgis server account as local. Is it ok or I have to make a active directory based domain account?

2. I want to install Data Store in same ArcGIS server but in other drive like D:/

3. Should I install the Web Adaptor in Web Server?

4. Should I install SQL server Native Clients in ArcGIS desktop client PC's?

5. Where I have to install ArcSDE (as Database Server in ESRI software site)? Should I install it in ArcGIS server or in Sql Server machine?

Please suggest me your guidelines. If there is any documentation for ArcGIS server administration rather than esri web help , please provide me.

Thanking you

1. You can use a Domain account. If you used a local account first - then Change the account with the "Configure ArcGIS Server Account" Tool. Check that the new account has all neccessary permissions. http://server.arcgis.com/en/server/latest/administer/windows/the-arcgis-server-account.htm

2. You can install the data store "wherever you want" during the Installation. "Specify a location on the computer where you want these files to be stored." http://server.arcgis.com/en/portal/latest/administer/windows/install-data-store.htm

3. The WebAdaptor has to be installed on a Server with a WebServer running. In your case I recommend to install the WebAdaptor on the Web Server Machine.

4. If you want to connect to your SQLServer with ArcGIS for Desktop you have to install SQL Server Clients. 32bit for the ArcGIS for Desktop, 64bit Clients fot ArcGIS for Server.

5. You don't have to install ArcSDE.

I would like to add a few points.

1. You need to install Data Store only if you are planning to install Portal for ArcGIS, and make the concerned ArcGIS server as the hosting server.

2. Installation of SQL Server client depends on the OS of the client machine. If it is a 64-bit OS, you need to install 64-bit client only. This will also install the components that are required to work with ArcGIS for Desktop connectivity with SQL Server. Installation of a 32-bit client will fail in a 64-bit machine.

3. As already mentioned by Stefan, there is no separate component of ArcSDE that needs to be installed. You will need to copy the appropriate DatabaseSupport files from ArcGIS install directory to the Database Server.

Hope this helps!

Hello Mr Jayanta, thanks for your discussions. Can't I implement Portal for ArcGIS after ArcGIS server installations? I hope I can and in same machine of ArcGIS server.

And I did not get your lines " You will need to copy the appropriate DatabaseSupport files from ArcGIS install directory to the Database Server." . -- Can you please discuss a bit more on it clearly.

Regards

You can definitely install Portal after the installation of ArcGIS Server. It's just I did not find the component of Portal in your question.

Hi Muqit,

I would recommend keeping a local account (e.g. 'arcgis') while configuring a server account. Since you would be federating the ArcGIS Server site with Portal for ArcGIS, you could configure the Portal for ArcGIS to use the domain users (Integrated Windows Authentication) on a later stage.

For now, keep it simple.
